I'm using fedora 31 + Cinnamon I can use the themes but not install any window border. Some clue to fix it ?

The window borders work, but the GUI doesn't let me chose them. Use the command line to bypass that problem and type: gsettings set org.cinnamon.desktop.wm.preferences theme 'Mint-XP' (For the theme itself: gsettings set org.cinnamon.theme name "Mint-XP" ) You can also use these commands to create keyboard shortcuts for all your themes ;-)

Mix the cinnamon theme from petrucci4prez and the new linux mint, and you have gold. THis and that one are very close, except this one is more updated Now we just need the title bar to be blue again. It wont show up in the themes except for cinnamon, which has a slightly of separator applet
